“Wonderful sandwiches and amazing desserts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Had a lovely lunch at Short & Sweet, the owner Maria is delightful and her staff warm and attentive. Had a great BLTA sandwich on fabulous fresh focaccia bread and topped it off with an amazing Lillikoi bar, what a treat and so unique to Hawaii. I would definitely return again and again

“Sweet Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

After a bad experience with accommodation, this place was an awesome retreat. The guy who served us was fantastic and upon hearing our story was apologetic and very helpful. This place is highly recommended for service and food - sweet and savoury options and good coffee. We went back for seconds a few days later despite it being out of our way.

“Great bread and sandwiches.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Bake their own breads, Cranberry and Macadamia Nut Bread contains whole nuts. Delicious toasted. Sandwiches are a little pricey, but bread is individually baked like foccacia and made fresh.

“Amazing find in a small town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Delicate french pastries, fantastic salads and even gluten free cookies or creme brule! Something for everyone who has a sweet tooth, unless you are vegan!

“Breakfast, lunch, treats - YUM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

What a great place for breakfast or lunch! Bread is fresh, food is local, the staff is friendly, coffee is good, and free wi-fi too! Service is sometimes fast, sometimes very slow, so be patient. They "hand craft" each sandwich.
A very reasonably priced option for a casual breakfast sandwich, or to pick up a few treats to have later.
We ate here several times for breakfast or lunch, when we didn't want a 'sit-down' restaurant meal. I highly recommend it.
